Clearly there is an air leak and ignoring the (obvious) possibility of a leaky tank or drain valve or exposed pipework it leaves two possibilities - either the electrical pressure switch diaphragm is failing or the compressor nonreturn valve is failing.

I suggest you switch on the compressor and when air receiver has a partial charge disconnect the power and attempt to locate the leak.
Use a couple of feet of hose as a listening aid for large leaks and a little detergent solution to pinpoint small leaks...

First I would look in the the guide to see if a nail or staple is caught in there preventing the closing. If OK, I would then try to break off a couple of nails from the tape (to shorten the overall length of the strip) and see if it will close. (It's possible that the particular brand your using is slightly longer than what the machine is designed for.)

The nails may be to light gauge for fibre cement board as this board is quite hard to penetrate so the nails will start bending before they are fully in.
